Unexpected Blessings

9.2.17    Unexpected Blessings
What are unexpected blessings? Do you recognize as they come? I wonder if mankind is just too focused on his/her own agendas to really see the amazing things our God places in our lives each day. Some of these blessings come to us disguised as a loss or a trauma, a negative and as a frustration.  What if we truly believe God the Father is in control of our life, as we allow Him,  then we must believe that He is aware of all things and allows all things. This is so hard for us to do. We have our concept of what is good and what is bad. Have you ever realized that something you thought was so terrible in your life actually ended up being a crossroad of choice and a decision that changed the course of your life?  Even in death a new life has potential to begin. As Christ died on that cross and His followers knew He was laid to rest, it was the beginning of a brand new potential that the world and mankind had never known and would never know again. His followers were distraught and fearful, full of loss and grieving. There seemed to be no future and no purpose for them, their loss was overwhelming. In the losses of my life I have wondered some of these same things. As I have walked with the Lord now for many years I now have a much better understanding and trust in Him. I have had the experience of 'seeing' how He has made new life and given new promise and hope to me through all negative things. Even in some positive things I experienced loss of the familiar, of friends, of comfort. As Believers we must come to the understanding in our spirit that our God is good ALL the time and in ALL things. He always has our benefit at the heart of all matters. 

 In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 we are told to " Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you";

Romans 8:28  "And we know that IN all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

Many of my greatest blessings have come as the result of hard times and loss. Dear Believer, do not be discouraged. Do not feel that God doesn't care about you or that He has forgotten you or that He is angry with you. None of that is true. Life happens,  but He has promised to give us a way through it and to bring a blessing out of it. Trust Him. Believe Him. Choose to see the potential. Choose to grow up in Him! It will turn your weeping into joy......  The enemy of our faith wants us to see the loss; our God wants us to see a new potential. Remember, God IS good, and God IS good ALL the time!
-Pastor Sandra Matheson
Psalm 107:1  Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!                           
Nahum 1:7  The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.                             
Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Second Passport by Investment on Thursday, April 1, 2021 1:48 AM
Power of Second Passport by Investment The wealthiest individuals are no longer only spending their worthwhile investment on lavish casinos, private aircraft, luxury cruisers, and 7* hotels, they are spending out money on second passports as well. They know the Power of Second Passport and this concept is growing up day by day. In previous centuries like before the World War-1, the travelers who wanted to visit the entire world, they didn’t require a passport for worldwide travel.
